A Special Message Regarding the Tragedy in Japan
Our hearts go out to the people of Japan in the wake of the tragic events of the past week. Our planned tour scheduled for March 20-28 was to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students to experience Japanese culture and make a real connection to Japanese students through music. A planned highlight of the trip was to have the opportunity to sing at the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima. In the months of planning and preparation for the trip, the students developed an emotional connection to Japan.
After the shock of hearing about the tragedy, students turned their thoughts not to the loss of a trip, but to the welfare of their Japanese counterparts. Our students are actively seeking ways to contribute to relief efforts. Their message to the people of Japan is:
"We are praying for you.
